Logan Square Monument
Often referred to as the ‘Logan Square monument’, the Illinois Centennial Monument column at the heart of the neighborhood inspired the name Longman & Eagle, in honor of monument sculptor Evelyn Longman. So it is, obviously, of particular importance to us here at the L&E.
A recent maintenance assessment of the 1918 monument revealed that the sculpture is in need of $80,000.00 in repairs, and fundraising efforts are underway.
The owners of local printing business Poster Plus have come up with one such option, a limited edition of a 1923 Oscar Rabe Hanson historical print that has been donated to theLogan Square Preservation group to help launch their fundraising efforts.
It is a beautiful piece, and can be purchased here.
